In this absorbing, surprising, and undeniably compelling
book, forensics expert Emily Craig tells her own story of a life spent
teasing secrets from the dead.
Emily Craig has been a witness to
history, helping to seek justice for thousands of murder victims, both
famous and unknown. It’s a personal story that you won’t
soon forget. Emily first became intrigued by forensics work when, as a
respected medical illustrator, she was called in by the local police to

respected and best-known “bone hunters” in the nation.
As a student working with the FBI in Waco, Emily helped uncover
definitive proof that many of the Branch Davidians had been shot to

match any of the known
victims. Through careful scientific analysis,
Emily was able to help identify the leg’s owner, a pivotal piece
of evidence that helped convict Timothy McVeigh.
2001, Emily received a phone call summoning her to New York City, where
she directed the night-shift triage at the World Trade Center’s
body identification site, collaborating with forensics experts from all
over the country to collect and identify the remains of September 11
From the biggest news stories of our time to
stranger-than-true local mysteries, these are unforgettable stories from
